The Males’ Guide to the Dreams MedSpa (and great gift ideas for Father’s Day!)

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, male patients accounted for more than 1.5 million total cosmetic surgical procedures and almost 14 million cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures last year.

“Cosmetic procedures and skin care are not just for women” says Dreams MedSpa provider Jed Sanders, APRN. “It does take a little work to stay looking your best, but the benefits are fantastic! In the workforce and in the dating world, projecting your best self and feeling good about yourself can set you a step ahead of competition.”

We asked Jed for some general advice to give to our male clients, and for direction to those who would like to visit the MedSpa but simply don’t know where to start. From basic daily skin care regimen advice to information about minimally-invasive procedures, Jed explains some of the most beneficial options for our guys.

A Basic Skin Care Regimen For Men

JedA basic daily skin care regimen should consist of a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. Adding additional specialty products or treatments such as facials and chemical peels are up to the individual. Our team is happy to assist you in finding the right customized routine to meet your specific concerns.

Botox and Fillers

The staff at Village Pointe Aesthetic Surgery | Dreams MedSpa offers many minimally-invasive procedures that might be of interest to our male clientele. Men are often concerned about deep wrinkles between the eyes and on the forehead, and crow’s feet. These wrinkles can alter your appearance and give away different facial expressions than you were intending to display, such as worried or threatening emotions. Botox is a simple fix as it softens these lines, and if started early, it can even prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.

As we age, our skin and bone structure also begin to change, leading to a loss of volume in the lips, cheeks and other areas of the face. This leads to an aged appearance, which may not match the way we feel on the inside. There are now  a variety of fillers on the market that will boost and fill the volume lost. This can add years back to your appearance, and fillers can be very subtle. The results are instantaneous and last a considerable amount of time.

Fat Reduction, Sweat Solutions and Hair Removal

Kybella is a new treatment for submental fat under the chin (also called “double chin”). It involves a quick series of injections to the area and results are noticed within several weeks. CoolSculpting may also be of interest to men who want to improve their waistline. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses freezing to break down fat cells, removing unwanted fat in the midsection and other problem areas.

Men of any age can be embarrassed by underarm perspiration and odor that can onset at any inconvenient time, such as during a presentation, a date, or another important event. MiraDry is a treatment that has worked to reduce underarm sweat and odor.

Lastly, males tend to come in many degrees of “hairiness.” For some, it’s a badge of honor. For others, it can be a hindrance from participating in activities, such as swimming. Laser hair removal can change this, so if this is an area of concern, we can help!

The providers at Village Pointe Aesthetic Surgery | Dreams MedSpa serve both men and women and they are very professional – they will put your mind at ease. We want to help everyone achieve their best self and we are here to make you feel comfortable and to answer your questions.
